Data Discovery

Automate data discovery and classification

Global regulations require the timely fulfillment of consumer and data subject rights requests. Simplify the process with automated data discovery and out-of-the-box or custom classifiers.

  • Use AI and machine learning to discover data across your infrastructure 
  • Capture metadata to better manage retention, access, protection, and governance 
  • Identify at-risk data, implement security controls, and monitor over time with advanced analytics

Scalable, smart data discovery 

Discover personal, sensitive, and other data sets in unstructured file shares, structured databases, Big Data storage, SaaS applications, and other cloud solutions. Complex data can be found in text, CSV, PDF, Zip, and images with full OCR capabilities. 

Strengthen your business intelligence with complete data management 

Use data analysis to enrich metadata, map to business glossaries, and give business users control of relevant data. Enforce controls like encryption, masking, and access controls and build a real-time data visualization map or record of processing activities to better understand privacy requirements.
